Star Flower Pillow

Wow - life certainly has a way of getting past you and I'm totally shocked that I haven't written a word on this little blog since April. Good thing this little blog is just my way of seeing my own improvement and not out to get the highest number of hits.

Life certainly has been busy in my neck of the woods is one reason I have not blogged or even really sewed anything for that matter. My eldest daughter had a seizure in the middle of the night in May and my main concern has been to make sure she is fine - which she is! Medically the neurologist can not find anything wrong with her after numerous tests and are saying that this is a very common occurence in teenagers (she's 19). It can be caused by stress or even a hormonal imbalance. So . . . needless to say I'm now her designated driver along with my other 2 teenagers. So sewing and even blogging has become a back burner on my list of things to do.

I have been eyeing the beautiful charm pack of Reunion from Diane that I won months ago. Ever since it arrived. I so wanted to make Aylin Öztürk's Star Flower Pillow. I've had it pinned on my Pinterest account ever since I first saw it on Moda's website. I love it and I knew I could do it since I've done so many paper piecing projects.

So here is my pillow. I didn't do the binding since I've never conquered it and I also didn't want to use up any of my Reunion stash. Pretty selfish - uh? I've since made another pillow using HST's to go with it but that will have to be blogged at a later date when I have more time to sit on the computer and download the pictures.

Off to go run some teenagers around.

Have a Great Day!

I love Reunion & this pillow makes me want to try paper piecing even more than I already did! Beautiful!

Glad to see you back, sounds like you have had a trying time recently! Good to hear that your daughter is fine.

I love your pillow, I have that pillow pinned too, but haven't done any more than that with it, unlike you:)

Your pillow is perfect, I've only tried paper piecing once but would love to try this when I've got more progress under my belt.
Glad your daughter got the all clear.
